Watching TV

The Details of the Question
My family watches TV everyday. Is watching Tv haram?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Deciding whether watching TV is haram or not completely depends on the program. Here  the problem is not in the TV as an electoronic device but in what a person watches in it. There is nothing wrong in watching TV programs that respect to our social, belief system and moral values. As muslims we should always watch programs that are beneficial for us. In addition to this, watching TV kills good traits such as friendship and reading. In conclusion TV can be considered fair as long as the programs are good but watching programs that show nudity is considered haram in Islam.
